Prudent session for Piazza Affari and the other European stock exchanges, while Wall Street continues to decline slightly. The Ftse Mib closes trades up by 0.1% to 24,465 points, supported by the rebound of oil companies, in particular Saipem (+4.2%) and Tenaris (+2.9%).

Erg was also in the light (+1.9%), which landed today on the main list to replace Atlantia. The latter will be delisted on December 9, following the takeover bid in which Schema Alfa (vehicle owned by the Benetton family and the Blackstone fund) has exceeded 95% of the capital of the infrastructure holding company. Amplifon (-3.25%), Telecom Italia (-2.3%) and Diasorin (-2%) are down.

Off the main list, a nervous day for Juventus (-0.9%), after the resignation of the entire board following the combined investigations by Consob and the Turin prosecutor’s office for false accounting and market manipulation. Also noteworthy is the exit from Ferrari (-0.9%) of Mattia Binotto, team principal of the Formula 1 team since 2019.

Internationally, expectation is growing for tomorrow’s intervention by Jerome Powell, who should reaffirm the Fed’s commitment to raise rates further. At the same time, the chairman’s words could reinforce expectations of a slowdown in the pace of monetary tightening.
